Upcoming events (5+)
Tuesday, September 17th from 6-8:15pm! Prof. Jerry Kang's TEDTalk "Immaculate Perception" - https://youtu.be/9VGbwNI6Ssk A Pragmatic Deep Dive on How We Initially Value Others - a Multi-Meetup Professional & Personal Development Workshop In his TEDTalk, Professor Jerry Kang states "We thought we were blessed with immaculate perception, but it turns out we're infected with implicit bias." Join us on Tuesday as we elevate the awareness of our implicit and explicit biases, and see the connection with our quality of life! After the communal TED viewing, we'll explore how we label and/or discriminate in subtle ways, and the short and long-term ramifications of doing so. All will be provided biases tests that you'll be welcome to take home with you. No one is expected to share their results or past experiences; rather the tests and the whole evening will serve as a personal checkpoint in how you associate with all groups. We'll then convene in thought-provoking breakout circles, and close with each circle presenting the gems from their discussions in a large harvest format. Buffet dinner social directly after our event! Note: No proselytizing in any shape or form will be accepted in this and other workshops we hold. Where there are differences in opinion, please respect.

*PURCHASE AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/murder-mystery-party/dates/ (*PREPAY ONLY EVENT) Our Murder Mystery Parties have become an awesome alternative to the usual "after work happy hour" scene. It is a great way to go out on your own with friends or on your own and meet other fun people in a super organized and interesting way! Join us for this fun Murder Mystery Theme Party where everyone at the party is a suspect and you will help to find the killer!! Everyone at our party will have a character to play, no experience necessary and it is so much fun! Pre-Mingle starts at 6:30. We will start to put together teams at 7pm. Everyone will be given a character sheet explaining who they are and who they fit into the story. The Theme: Your presence is requested at Mystery Manor for an evening filled with murder and mystery in order to commemorate the death of the late millionaire, Rick A. Rochester. Among Rick's dying wishes, he wanted his will reading to be a party thrown in his honor to gather together those most important in his life. From his eccentric ex-wife to his interfering in-laws, his spying servants to the provocative pool boy, it seems that everyone has a shot at a piece of his estate. As one of Rick's closest confidants or family members, it is your help that is needed to piece together the mystifying death of Mr. Rochester and to avoid being the victim of yet another murder as you attend his will reading. Use caution in considering your involvement in this gathering, for as likely as it is that you will walk away with a great deal of inheritance, you are also just as likely not to walk out at all. FAQs: Can I come alone? Yes 90% of those attending will likely register on their own but you are invited to bring as many guests as you would like just register for that amount. Age-specific? All are welcome 21 and over. *PURCHASE TICKET AT - https://dljparty.ticketleap.com/murder-mystery-party/dates/ *$20-$30 depending upon how early you purchase. NOT sold at door. Game limited to 40 people and we have less than 20 tickets left!
